The $2.2million expanded program to repair unsealed gravel roads in the Mansfield Shire is well progressed with work on a long list of roads having already been completed.

Mayor Cr James Tehan said the resheeting program is restoring the Shire’s unsealed, gravel roads, providing critical links for agriculture, business, residents, and visitors.

“Many identified roads have now been resheeted, with more scheduled to be completed in the coming months,” Cr Tehan said.

Resheeting repairs unsealed roads that deteriorate due to weather and traffic.

“A new 100mm layer of crushed rock is added to the road surface, then compacted and shaped. The program also includes the excavation and installation of numerous new drains as well as shoulder and table drain reshaping, to improve the drainage of the road surface,” he said.

The following gravel roads have had work completed on sections of the road as part of the 2021-22 program:
